I almost hesitate to post this question because it's effectively free advertising for Dr Joe Vitale, a man who many consider to be a marketer masquerading as a spiritual teacher.
But, controversy aside, has anyone read his latest book called Instant Manifestation?
Seems like a pretty brave title for a book and it promises "...the real secret to making the Law of Attraction work for you...".
Is there anything in it that we haven't already discussed on this website many times over?
I thought I would go ahead and listen to the audio on the sales page, and at the 31 minute mark is this remark by Joe Vitale:
So he's basically saying the less resistance you have, the quicker you'll get what you want...which is something we've talked about here many times.
Perhaps not such a big secret after all then, at least to those who read the questions and answers on Inward Quest.

Without reading the book I can confidently say that there is nothing of extra value in it to anyone who has access to IQ and Abraham's stuff. Mr. Vitale probably put out more products than any other "The Secret" (a movie that does a poor job of explaining LOA) teacher, any every time it's with aggresive marketing style "This time it's the REAL DEAL".
He put out about a year ago a program called "The Abundance Paradigm". He there in a marketing video apologized to his customers because he did not give them all the information possible until now and this time he is going to make it all clear and that this is the TRUE product that will help anyone that is struggling with LOA. I was impressed and ordered that product, of course it was again a waste of time. I am not surprised that again he has found the REAL secret to manifestation, it seems he does it every week.
I'll say it again - avoid his teachings like the plague. It is sad to say but based on his products, I think he doesn't really understand LOA fully himself...

I am for the source wherever you find it. Maybe Joe will strike chord with some.
I'm very happy on I Q, tons of help free. One person with many points said the he/she used Learning Strategies Paraliminals. I have found them to priceless.
Everyone wants to manifest and there is a learning curve involved. Some ideas work better some than others. I.E. I don't use focus wheels, I go for the very simple ideas like manifestation experiment 1. The idea of starting out small with everyday manifestations is brilliant. We all can have better lives.
Many Great Blessing!!!!

Thanks for asking this question. I’ll use it to clarify some things :)
My actual answer is no I haven’t read his latest book. In fact, I stopped reading/watching/listening to Joe Vitale's material in 2009. Not because I had/have anything against him, I don't, but because I had moved passed the level of useful information coming from that channel (Joe Vitale) and onto channeled information from non-physical sources, including my own higher self.
However, I’m so glad that I discovered Joe Vitale before joining Inward Quest. Had I joined Inward Quest first and listened to and believed certain ‘experts’ here, I would have missed out on a great source of information. Like it or not, Joe was a part of ‘The Secret’ movie for a good reason. And while some people may not like him that does not mean that what he says is not helpful to some other people.
I want others to know that if his work resonates with you, you will find it helpful.
Joe’s methods and his work are obviously serving a particular segment of the self help market.
Embedded within his, in my opinion, over-hyped, overbearing (bordering on spam) mass communications machine, there are many helpful freebies.
How do you know how much repetition and how many freebies some people need before they’ll actually go out and buy a book, video or course that will help them to finally get it? And how do you know how many times some people need to hear the word ‘secret’ before they’ll allow themselves to take action?
The answer to these questions is: you don’t know!
Now on a deeper level, surely everyone here at Inward Quest understands that being against something can only serve to net you more of the same? For instance: if you hate Joe, you’ll probably hate my answer here, but that’s your reflection.
Why not just live and let live? Focus on what you want and ignore the rest? What part of you still feels the need to make another wrong? It seems to me after studying his work for a couple of years that Joe understands the ideas of oneness, integration, judgment, forgiveness, love, compassion and meaning...
The bigger question is: do you? 8-)

I have his free e-book "Spiritual Marketing" it is one of my favorite books on manifesting. I do not know about this new book, but I do know "Spiritual Marketing" is very good. He wrote that book actually to never sell but for his sister that was having a lot of troubles in life. He went from being homeless to having it all, he even bought Steven Tyler's custom made car (Panoz Roadster). His mind is on wealth and the good life constantly now. Everything he wants comes right to him so he is doing something right. "Spiritual Marketing" was later re-invented as the number one best-seller "The Attractor Factor." I have a few of his books but really my favorite I keep re-reading is "Spiritual Marketing." He writes with the influences of Bruce Barton, Robert Collier, P.T. Barnum, Henry Ford, Andrew Carnegie. These were some of the best copy writers ever but as well some of the best manifesters there ever were. These and James Allen, Napoleon Hill, Wallace Wattles, William Walker, Jim Rohn, and many others. He studied all of these men and learned their secrets he went to the real meat and potatoes of their teachings and found the gems. He struck a deal with Christian H. Godefroy to put his book on The Positive Club for free. You can get "Spiritual Marketing." here free. It is a simple Five-Step program for manifesting as well it talks about his life experiences with manifesting and how he went from nothing to having it all. It is one of my favorite books I keep re-reading, granted it is not as good as "Ask And You Shall Receive", that book is near perfect but it is still very good. Bob Proctor does an excellent forward to his book. Joe is well known on Nightingale Conant as Zig Ziggler, Anthony Robins, Wayne Dyer, Brian Tracy, Deepak Chopra, I bought tape collections from them years ago, excellent stuff, Jim Rohn "Lead The Field" was my favorite.
